Commented the band: â€œWe are really proud to officially announce our last addition to our merchandise. This is a completely different and pioneering idea driven by the great devotion and respect that we have for our country, Italy and our region, Umbria.
As Italians we take much pride in our food and traditions, that’s why we present our artisan â€˜pasta.â€™ This is an high quality product, something that you hardly find in foreign countries stores. We personally collected the most famous and delicious types to offer to FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE fans as another way to enjoy Italian art. As for promotional campaign and due to high shipping costs of these items we decided to lower the prices for the next period in order to give the chance to everyone to enjoy these special products.
Here follows a little clip with our drummer Francesco Paoli showing how to cook it in the proper way. We are also excited to announce that we are shooting a brand new conceptual video for a song extracted from our last release. It will definitely stand up from the average as we are going to shoot it in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Sicilia. This region was part of Greece right in the era where the â€˜Labyrinth of Knossosâ€™ myth is collocated and our philological research led us there. It will be artistically deep and metaphorically intricate, a real reflection on the sense of our lives. Considering how big this matter is and how much we love our art, we decided to invest all the FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE pasta and wine profits in a big production video as well as in the future development of the band.
Obviously, all your support is really appreciated. Last but not least we will officially start the HUGE touring campaign in support of our new album Labyrinth. We will play all around the world, starting in Europe in January, continuing in Central America, Asia and Oceania in spring and coming back with an incredible tour in North America in the summer. Can’t wait to bring the apocalypse once again all around the world! Finally, we want to thank you all for the unending support and for the massive trust in this band and its art.”
Labyrinth was produced, mixed and mastered by Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio and hones in on the band’s unique traits, giving fans everything they could hope for and more. Colin Marks (ORIGIN, KATAKLYSM) also created the cover artwork, as well as several pieces for a massive inlay. Labyrinth was released on August 16, 2013 in Europe and August 20, 2013 in North America via Nuclear Blast.

“The concept of this album is based on the myth of the Labyrinth of Knossos and every character related to it,â€ stated vocalist/guitarist Tommaso Riccardi recently. â€œWe focused on the philological aspect in order to represent all the elements of the classic world and, through a manic and meticulous research, we managed to create a metaphor with our times, as the maze can be associated with the endless search for what we really are. We’re sure you will be stunned by this as much as we are.â€
